In emails sent to former Board President Mary Garcia, Board member Susan Facklam wrote “Don’t let them turn us in; gifts to register to vote is probably illegal”.
Susan Facklam, who STILL sits on the D46 School Board, was eventually notified by Lake County Chief Deputy State’s Attorney Daniel Jasica that she had been found guilty of “a felony violation of Illinois election code by handing out the gift certificates”. Garcia lost her re-election bid.
Currently, there is no update on when the Board and the Union will be sitting down again to discuss the contract. In the meantime, while the teachers walk the picket line the students are losing out on their education.
